Reasons for Refusal in Canada Immigration

Canada provides various immigration options for Indians, but applying and completing the processes  can sometimes be challenging. Here is a list of seven common reasons why people’s immigration files get refused for permanent residence in Canada, which should help anybody thinking of, or in the process of, immigrating to Canada.
1.      Misrepresentation or Misunderstanding
In some cases misrepresentation originates from the applicant itself either for misreading a question on a application form, leaving items of information blank on a form, or writing non related information while completing a form. While the term ‘misrepresentation’ may seem to imply a deliberate attempt on the part of the applicant to conceal or distort certain information but this not always true. Sometimes misrepresentations are accidental and preventable. The result of misrepresentation is very harsh, not only the application is refused, but also the applicant may be banned from reapplying for two years (five years for Quebec applications). We at Angad helps in all such matters as our consultants offer the best advice possible so that you are not misrepresented. 
2.       Health Issues
All applicants for permanent residency in Canada and their dependents are required to take a medical examination with a doctor recognised by Citizenship and Immigration Canada (CIC) and certain health issues may result in refusal. Applicants for permanent residence who require medication for Diabetes or Hepatitis A, Cancer, TB for example, could be deemed to be a potential burden on Canada’s universal healthcare system, and CIC reserves the right to refuse an otherwise eligible application for permanent residence on health grounds. There are, however, ways to overcome inadmissibility on health grounds. For example,  a report from a specialist on the condition could help an applicant’s case and help to avoid further medical examinations, delays and/or refusal. We can help you with our expert advice so that your case meets favourable response.
3.       Criminal Background 
It important and mandatory to get criminal background checks from every country the applicant has resided in for six months or longer since he or she turned 18 years of age. If you don’t have any charges or convictions in your past, this stage is just about getting the paperwork done. Consulting an immigration lawyer with experience in issues pertaining to criminal inadmissibility is always a good idea for such applicants.
4.       Missing the Deadline for Documentation
There are deadlines for the submission of certain forms and documents. Missing one of these deadlines, however, could result in an application being refused. Therefore, knowing how and when to obtain certain documents, and how and when to complete certain forms, is hugely important. Missing a deadline is usually avoidable but if you are busy or travelling or your mailing system like in India is unreliable its advisable to higher services of an immigration consultant whose job is to keep track of the paper work and deadlines which will make the difference between immigrating to Canada and having an application refused. Even is the delay has happened we can help you in preparing the paper work explaining the grounds for extension and give reasons and/or supporting documents.
5.       Poor Documentation
A clear and detailed list of documents is required from the applicant in order to submit the application.  It is up to the applicant to locate these documents and submit them to the correctly with Canadian immigration authorities. Failure to do so could result in the application being refused. A consultant is well aware of these documents and helps you to complete all the formalities. 
6.       Ineligibility Application
Canada offers more than 60 immigration programs, each of which is unique. Depending on a number of factors, such as a person’s age, education, net worth, occupation and work experience, he or she may be eligible for one, more than one, or none of these programs. A general glance at point test for example may lead to an applicant believing that he or she is eligible, but it may be the case that he or she is not, in fact, eligible for that program. A detailed study of the application criteria against the applicant’s credentials is needed to assess eligibility for an immigration program for which a experienced consultant is required and we at Angad can help you assess your eligibility.
